Weekend Update: Computer Crashes and Ulta

Hi friends!

I've missed all my bloggy friends dearly but I had to take some time off to oh you know move across the country!! I also had to set up my apartment, get my new car, and work on my master's classes. To say I've been a tad busy is an understatement but I'm LOVING every day of my life.

I'm so excited to link up with these fabulous girls again for the weekend blog update!

 It's amazing how now that I have Christine near by how busy I am! I love being able to go and do things with her or just hang out at one of our apartments and play with Elvis (the dog, not the king).

This past week I got my new computer from Tracky!! Tracky is an awesome online collaboration website and they gave me a new Macbook Pro 17in. Screen for winning their raffle through twitter! I can tell I'm going to use Tracky a lot in my classroom and for my master's classes. The best part? They are locally based in Las Vegas!

Anyways I was in the middle of transferring my computers when my old one died! I didn't freak out I just powered down and tried to start it again... then a blank screen appeared with a flashing ?. Then I began my freakout. Took it to the Apple Store just to hear the bad news... my hard drive is gone and I lost everything! If anyone knows how to recover hard drives please let me know!!!

To cheer me up I did some retail therapy with Christine at Ulta. They had a deal going where if you purchased $30 in fragrance you received this awesome tote on wheels. Perfect for weekend getaways! They also had a sale on my 2 favorite perfumes, Happy by Clinique and Twirl by Kate Spade! I was a happy girl when I left :)

 It was a good weekend and I'm so happy to be blogging back on a regular basis! I've been trying to keep up with all of your lovely blogs but will be doing a large part of that today :)

Happy Monday Friends!!


  1. Sounds like a great weekend...minus the computer crash! Your dog is ADORABLE. Those ears!! Oh and I'm loving all those goodies from Ulta! Hope you're having a great week!

  2. I love that new laptop, but I’m so sorry to hear about your hard drive! I hope it’s been resolved now. If not, I know there are actually places that can help you recover files from your hard drive even after it’s died. You can always look them up online.
